Looking to improve your wine grape quality? Join us for a free webinar!

February 12, 2016

On February 17, Dr. Daniel Cozzolino will present NIR Technology in the Wine Industry

Viticulture (from the Latin word for vine) is the science, production, and study of grapes. It deals with the series of events that occur in the vineyard. Join us as we explore the relationship between NIR technology and Viticulture.

In This Webinar You Will Learn

  • How NIR technology can be used for continuous and non-destructive measurements on grape, wine products, and processes over time

  • How NIR analysis can help identify grape characteristics and chemical properties of materials during the production of wine products.

Date and Time: Feb. 17, 2016 at 4:00 PM MST (Feb. 18, 2016 at 9:00 AM AEST)

New Illuminator Reflectance Lamp: Accurate and Reliable Reflectance Measurements

September 12, 2012

Obtaining a strong and stable light source that maximizes the amount of light energy on a sample area is critical for obtaining accurate spectral analysis. That’s why we created the Illuminator Reflectance Lamp, a stable light source that addresses a wide range of spectral applications requiring artificial illumination without physical sample contact.

The Illuminator is designed to work with the FieldSpec® line of spectroradiometers or other instrumentation that requires reflectance illumination. The Illuminator can be used while scanning soil and minerals, vegetation, fragile fossil specimens, delicate documents, and reflective or painted surfaces.

Illuminator Benefits:
•    Dependable illumination over the 350 to 2500 nm range
•    Concentrated light energy through well-defined beam
•    Variety of mounting options makes it usable with any lab stand or tripod
•    Can be used with nearly any instrument performing reflectance measurement readings (recommended with FieldSpec spectroradiometers)
•    Soft-start feature extends bulb life: rated at 1,340 hours, which is equivalent  to more than 160 full days of steady use. 

The Future of Field Spectroscopy: ASD is Born Out of Innovation and Advancements in Technology (Part 3 of 4)

May 29, 2012

In 1990, the world of field spectroscopy instruments changed forever. Analytical Spectral Devices Inc. (ASD) was founded by Drs. Alexander F. H. Goetz and Brian Curtiss who had been working together at the University of Colorado, Center for the Study of Earth from Space.

Pecora Turns 40, Looks to Future of Remote Sensing Applications; ASD is Exhibiting

November 09, 2011

ASD is excited to be a part of this year’s ASPRS 2011 Pecora 18 Conference and Symposium next week in Herndon, Va. This is the fortieth year of the conference, started by USGS and NASA as a way to exchange ideas and research concerning land remote sensing. The highlight of attending the conference is the ability to visit with remote sensing researchers to share ground truthing and field research and ideas.

FPInnovations Guest Blog: NIR Sheds Light on Property Measurement in the Pulp and Paper Industry

June 02, 2011
-Thanh Trung, Senior Scientist , FPInnovations

Wood is an incredibly dynamic renewable resource and as innovative opportunities for new wood-based processes and products emerge, we must strive to strike that balance of advancement and environmental sustainability.  Canada-based FPInnovations is the world’s largest private, not-for-profit forest research institute. As Senior Scientist, I lead research teams with a common goal—to uncover ways to advance technologies that can make North American forest industry companies more competitive in the global marketplace. Nurturing technological advances that improve efficiency in industries that rely on wood is one of our responsibilities.
